Synopsis:

No Jewish divorce is complete without the man literally giving the woman her freedom back. With Israel having neither civil marriage nor divorce, women can get trapped. The film follows several such ‘chained’ women together with Batya, a religious lawyer, who embarks on a struggle against the rabbinical courts.
